Our Christmas Social was very enjoyable, and had all the right ingredients to make it a success. I’d like to pay tribute to those ladies who made significant contributions. The festive table decorations were created by Pat and Shirley. The seasonal and colourful raffle was assembled by Audrey and Irene, with 22 chances to win something! Sue Woolgar had devised a “musicals” quiz, featuring familiar songs from well-known shows, which we had to identify. We ALL knew the tunes, as was evident from the general humming, but naming their origins wasn’t always easy. The winners, with a fantastic 22 correct answers out of 25, were Irene and Audrey!
After Brenda Eyers’ impressive demonstration showing us how to create a special floral centrepiece for the table, the draw for the Members’ Christmas Hamper was made: this was another masterpiece assembled by Wendy, of which I was the incredibly lucky winner! I should also mention that Margaret, whose ticket was the first drawn in the Christmas raffle, chose Brenda’s exquisite table decoration as her prize.
Wendy provided Christmassy tablecloths for the buffet table, and we nibbled, drank and chatted away… and before we knew it, it was past 10 pm! As they say, ‘Time flies when you’re having fun’!!
If all goes well, the Orchard Players’ production ‘Musical of Dreams’ will go ahead after Christmas, and we’ll take our seats for the evening performance on Thursday 13th January at 7.30pm.
We now look forward to a more normal year of Capel Ladies Club activities, if at all possible. We start with our first meeting on Thursday 3rd February, when we will have some fun with a Backwards Raffle, and welcome our new committee for 2022, which we hope will be a happy and healthy year for us all!
